Cowes Week appeal for Damien information

Wednesday, August 7, 2013 - 15:23

THE anonymous businessman behind a £10,000 reward to find Damien Nettles has made a direct appeal for anyone who was there when he was buried to come forward.
As reported by the Isle of Wight County Press last month the reward is being offered with the support of Damien’s family, who fear he was killed.
Now a mobile billboard has been appearing at sites around Cowes — the town where Damien was last seen — where thousands of people have gathered for the town’s historic regatta.
The billboard states: "If you were not there on the night Damien Nettles was buried then you can stop reading this, move on and enjoy your day."
It goes on to state that anyone who wants to claim the reward must: "prove to my satisfaction that you were there on the night in question. I will not act upon any information from anyone other than a person or persons who were present the night Damien was buried."
When news of the reward was first revealed, the police stated: "We must remain mindful that the 30 pieces of information received in response to a £20,000 police reward only repeated previous unfounded speculation, contained factually inaccurate details, or fell short of police standards for a reliable source.
"As a result, Hampshire Constabulary took the difficult decision not to extend our reward offer beyond six months in April 2013."
